Learning From Being On Country

14th May 2020

Save The Children have been helping 11 remote First Nations Communitites in the Northern Territory by giving them the resources for early childhood education on country through cultural learning.

The adapted Play2Learn program is consistent with the Early Years Learning Framework and reflects the natural environment of the homelands. It includes activities such as going hunting, taking part in ceremonial life, talking about traditional medicines and valuing language skills.

The Save the Children Fund was established in the United Kingdom in 1919 to improve the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts.

CAAMA’s Damien Williams spoke with Noelene Swanson Dircetor of save the children in the Northern Terriotry and Western Australia and asked her about the Save the Children orginisation.
